The weather in South Florida is usually wet, hot, and humid during the summer months.
- My family and I have lived in Tampa for the past 20 years.
I moved here with my mom and dad when I was a teenager and I still live here today. I’ve grown accustomed to living in an area where the AC is the most important appliance in your home. The AC has to work during the summer, or we could all perish from the heat. Sometimes the AC coils freeze up and we can’t use the AC unit. This type of problem happens frequently when there is a great deal of heat and humidity in the afternoon. Sometimes my wife and I have to turn off the air conditioner just to give the machine a break. The temperatures yesterday in Tampa were 98 degrees and it was already 85 degrees when I woke up that morning. The coils on the AC unit were frozen by 2 p.m. and the condensing line was clogged. This caused the water to back up into the area where the AC is located. The carpet got soaking wet after the AC backed up. Luckily, my wife and I know that this problem can occur. We didn’t have to contact a Tampa Bay AC professional to handle the problem. We pulled back the carpet and used a fan to dry the area underneath. We left the machine off until we could clear the condensing line and run the machine properly. It was smooth sailing after we cleaned the AC.
